Ronny Deila says that the supporters have been a major reason behind the club’s trophy
Celtic boss Ronny Deila says that the supporters have been a major reason behind the club’s trophy laden campaign. After being appointed as the replacement for Neil Lennon only last summer, many were sceptical aboutDeila performing well at Celtic.
The Norwegian had little experience about the Scottish Premier League, which is unique in a number of ways. Furthermore, he was not experienced as a top-level manager. All these disadvantages have disappeared in the space of 12 months after Deila managed to ensured that Celtic remained as the Premier League champions. Further, the club also did well in the European competitions.
The club has not wasted any time in improving the squad further in anticipation of greater competition next season. They have signed Dedryck Boyata and it is understood that Deila is looking for more signings in the next few months. The Belgian defender is understood to have cost to the Scottish club around £ 1.5 million for his transfer from Manchester City. Even though he made his debut for City back in 2009, the 24-year-old has featured only in a handful of matches for the former Premier League champions. Malmo defender Erik Johansson and Chilean striker Juan Delgado are some of the players currently linked with the Scottish club.
"Without the supporters we are nothing.That is why Celtic are so big - because we have such great supporters. That is the biggest thing I am pleased about.When I go around the streets I see that people are happy with the way we play.They like to watch us, they are excited by us, they can see improvement and they are motivated and look forward to next season. That is the biggest sign for me that we have done something right here. We want to build that relationship even more,” said Deila.
